IMPACT Guidance Training
19 February 2018
Smoking and Mental Health: Understanding the IMPACT (ASH
Free, two-hour training around the links between smoking and
mental health is now available to third-sector organisations. To
help address the inequalities linked to higher smoking rates
amongst people experiencing poor mental health, ASH Scotland is
offering a newly-developed training course called "Smoking and
Mental Health: Understanding the IMPACT". The aim is to equip
workers who support people with lived experience of mental health
problems with the knowledge, skills and confidence to initiate a
conversation on smoking, and to discuss options for supporting
people who are ready to quit. It is based on a Guidance pack, developed by ASH Scotland, which
offers practical solutions to this complex issue.
The training is free, primarily designed for staff working
within third-sector organisations, and comprises a one-hour online
session (completed in advance) and a two-hour face-to-face session.
Please note that priority will be given to staff from services
within the Lothians area until March 2018. From April 2018, spaces
will be opened up to organisations across the country.

Scotland, 8 Frederick Street, Edinburgh. This will take
place on Wednesday 9 May and 6 June (all 10am - 12pm).
